*Ifo Ekpre-Olomu Draft Value


Rating:

Top 2nd Round

NOTE: Our ratings are NOT where we predict a player will be drafted, but rather, where we believe a player SHOULD be drafted based upon future production.

Forecast:

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu reminds PFDN of Antoine Winfield. The former Duck has great hands, quick feet, plays the ball well and is aggressive. His draft stock is not as high as it should be due to a torn ACL and today many teams are looking for tall cornerbacks (call it the Seattle effect). Ekpre-Olomu may be only 5 foot 9, but he plays bigger than that. He can play press, off,zone or inside and outside. He could slip to the 3rd round and would be a bargain there.

Note: We put as much effort into researching a player’s football character (passion or interest in the game) and mental make-up as we do grading game film. Why? Because it is just as important (perhaps more so) as a player’s physical tools. Our scouting reports reflect this emphasis on capturing the total picture.
